Normal people being reintroduced into society slowly
ITHACA, NY—In an ambitious attempt to revive a population long considered to be on the brink of extinction, scientists announced Friday they have slowly begun to reintroduce normal, well-adjusted human beings back into society.
According to officials at Cornell University, where for the past 18 years conservation researchers have operated an enclosed sanctuary for humans who are levelheaded and make it a habit to think before they speak, the endangered group is being cautiously reintegrated into select locations nationwide in hopes that they can reestablish permanent communities and one day thrive again.
"We've worked for years to stabilize our society's dwindling population of sane, generally reasonable people, and within the safe confines of our refuge we've finally seen their numbers start to bounce back a little," said Josh Adelson, head of the Cornell research team, which moved the remaining members of the group into a protected habitat in 1998 to keep them from dying off completely. "Now, we can very gradually begin to release this rare breed of rational humans back into the general public. With luck, they can survive and prosper."
"Even if this small group of humans able to deal with their negative emotions in a nondestructive manner manages to flourish, there's still no telling whether the next generation will be able to survive."
"Our hope is that within a century or so, the traits for making sound long-term decisions and being able to tolerate people different from oneself will propagate and begin to reemerge within the species at large," he continued.
Prior to the conservation efforts, it is believed that even-tempered people with sound judgment and the ability to put the needs of others before themselves had dwindled to less than 150 within the country's borders, and had gone completely extinct in the nation's businesses and civic institutions. Experts widely agree that without isolation, protection, and captive-breeding programs, the remaining thoughtful, foresighted individuals would have been totally wiped out.
While admitting that the project's reintroduction phase would be complex and its success far from assured, Adelson stressed that such measures were nevertheless absolutely necessary if responsible and emotionally mature humans able to see beyond the immediate gratification of their basest desires were ever to reestablish a foothold in society.
"Obviously, we have taken great precautions before releasing these individuals into an environment where demonstrations of good sense, open-mindedness, and basic human empathy are perceived as signs of weakness and quickly preyed upon," said Adelson, who noted that to ease the transition during their first month acclimating to society, the endangered population would be kept away from television, the internet, advertisements, and all other forms of media. "For example, we've trained them for the inevitable encounters they will face with large groups of people incapable of separating emotions from arguments."
"It hasn't been easy," Adelson continued. "Last month, members of our trial group were confronted by several aggressive and predatory individuals, and another was nearly torn apart by angry hordes on social media within just 48 hours of being reintroduced into a metropolitan area, forcing us to bring them back to our refuge immediately."
Though researchers have expressed cautious optimism for the reintroduction program, many leading scientists have noted that the number of areas in the U.S. capable of sustaining well-adjusted humans has drastically decreased. According to experts, there is almost no chance the population will ever thrive again anywhere in the state of Florida.
"Even if this small group of humans able to deal with their negative emotions in a nondestructive manner manages to flourish, there's still no telling whether the next generation will be able to survive," Adelson said. "There are a lot of unknown variables, and we realize we're taking a big risk here. But this program is our last, best hope of ensuring that people who are willing to go out of their way to help someone who can't immediately offer them anything in return remain a part of our world."
Top researchers confirmed that it was already far too late to halt the country's dominant breed of humans—assholes—from spreading uncontrollably to every region on earth.

The Long History of Jewish/Israeli Ties with Jordan Posted: 29 May 2016 05:55 AM PDT History books provide glimpses of nearly a century of ties between Hashemite rulers and Jewish leaders, starting with the pre-state of Israel. Dr. Chaim Weizman of the Zionist Organization met with Emir Faisal in January 1919 and signed an agreement of understanding. T.E. Lawrence (of Arabia) was the interpreter for the meeting, but it is not certain to this day just how much of an "agreement" it was. Nevertheless the acts of meeting and dialogue were monumental.
Days before Israel's declaration of independence in May 1948, Golda Meir travelled to Jordan disguised as an Arab peasant to meet with King Abdullah to urge him to stay out of the pending Arab attack on the soon-to-be state. (He didn't.)
On September 25, 1973, Abdullah's grandson, King Hussein of Jordan, secretly visited Israel to warn Prime Minister Golda Meir of imminent attacks on Israel by Egypt and Syria. (Tragically, his warnings were not given their due seriousness.)
These two photographs, however, fill in some of the years. The first shows Emir Abdullah's personal bodyguards in 1922 -- armed Jewish Yemenite warriors from the Habani tribe. The three men were brothers -- Sayeed, Salaah, and Saadia Sofer. Notice their traditional side curls (peyot). The men of the Habani tribe were known as tall, muscular and fierce warriors. Hashemites also used Circassian bodyguards.
In 1932, King Abdullah was again in close relations with the Jewish Yishuv when he inaugurated the major hydro-electric power plant in Naharayim located on the Transjordan side of the Jordan-Yarmuk Rivers confluence. The Jewish project was headed by Pinhas Ruttenberg, the founder of the Palestine Electric Company. The joint project required security cooperation between the two sides to protect the plant and power lines.
More information on the power plant can be found here, The Great and Electrifying Pinchas Ruttenberg.
Some people need your help only once in a while. Others will need your help over and over again.
Each act of kindness is a separate entity of immense value. If you do 100 acts of kindness, these produce 100 sources of light -- whether they were done to help 100 different people or the same person.

Israel now making Whiskey
. The day is finally here, Eretz Yisrael has produced its first run of whiskey. Golan Heights Distillery has begun selling "Golani," a sour mash two grain triple wood matured Israeli whiskey...and it is smooth. For all you true Zionists out there, forget your Goldstar Beer, this is your new drink. I also spoke to the store I bought it from and he said he'd be willing to ship some outside of Israel.
Rabbi Avraham Sinai, once Ibrahim Yassin, spied on the terror group for Israel. This week his son Amos, born in Lebanon, received a presidential citation for service in Golani brigade
DEMOCRACY AND RACISM EXPLAINED
A Muslim immigrant kid in Britain asks his mother, "Mama, what's the difference between Democracy and Racism?"
Mother (in Burkha) - "Well, son, Democracy is when British tax payers work hard every day so that we can get all our benefits..... You know, like free housing, free health care, free education and grants to build mosques and community centres, & so on & so forth, you know… that's a Democracy".
"But Mama, don't the British tax payers get angry about that?"
Ya'alon is showing authority enhanced by his undoubted successful past achievements. It is doubtful that this new-born instructive will be applicable to lower banks.Somewhere along the line a member of the IDF must stifle his opinion and conform to senior officers decisions ( whether he likes it or not ).However squabbling at the top which Ya alon is promoting will result in schisms in decision making.It will only be good for one thing . It will create more new books to read of how we succeeded and where we went wrong.
Find triggers for your joy. Today, every time you hear a telephone ringing, hear a joyous inner cheer, "I am alive." Every time you hear a horn or bell, hear a joyous inner cheer, "I am alive." Every time you hear something that used to get you irritated or frustrated, allow yourself to hear a joyous inner cheer, "I am alive."

Antiquities Authority marine archaeology
Two recreational divers discovered a 1,600 year-old shipwreck on the seabed off the coast of Israel, leading to a salvage operation which uncovered one of the largest caches of marine artifacts ever found, antiquities officials revealed Monday.
The hoard was discovered off the coast of Caesarea, a major Roman-era seaport, sometime last month, the Israel Antiques Authority said in a statement, calling the find the most extensive underwater discovery in 30 years.
Pieces brought to the surface included a bronze lamp depicting the image of the sun god Sol, a figurine of the moon goddess Luna, a lamp in the image of the head of an African slave, fragments of three life-size bronze cast statues, objects fashioned in the shape of animals such as a whale, and a bronze faucet in the form of a wild boar with a swan on its head, the IAA said.
Fragment of jars the crew had used to store drinking water were also found.
Experts believe the finds came from a large merchant ship carrying metal slated for reuse when it ran into a storm near the harbor and smashed into the seawall and rocks.
"A preliminary study of the iron anchors suggests there was an attempt to stop the drifting vessel before it reached shore by casting anchors into the sea; however, these broke – evidence of the power of the waves and the wind which the ship was caught up in," the statement said.
Ran Feinstein and Ofer Ra'anan of Ra'anana were diving at the site of the ancient harbor in the Caesarea National Park before the recent Passover holiday in April when they noticed that shifting sand had exposed the remains of a ship and its contents.The divers, Ran Feinstein, right, and Ofer Ra'anan after the discovery.

The pair immediately contacted the IAA, which sent down archaeologists to take a look.
To their delight, the team spotted "iron anchors, remains of wooden anchors and items that were used in the construction and running of the sailing vessel," the authority said.
Feinstein and Ra'anan will be Awarded a Certificate of Appreciation by the IAA and given a personal tour of the IAA's storerooms as a reward for their good citizenry.A 1,600 year-old ship's anchor as it was discovered in the sea at the site of the ancient sea port at Caesarea, Israel, April 2016.

Jacob Sharvit, director of the Marine Archaeology Unit of the Israel Antiquities Authority, and Dror Planer, deputy director of the unit, dated the ship to sometime during the Late Roman Period or 3rd-4th century CE.
In the weeks following the discovery by Ra'anan and Feinstein, IAA divers along with volunteers carried out an underwater salvage survey and by using specialized equipment were able to find and recover many items from the cargo.Rare bronze artifacts discovered in at the site of the ancient sea port in Caesarea, Israel, April 2016.

The bronze statues are particularly rare; slated to be melted down, they instead sank and were preserved by the seawater.
"In the many marine excavations that have been carried out in Caesarea only very small number of bronze statues have been found, whereas in the current cargo a wealth of spectacular statues were found that were in the city and were removed from it by way of sea. The sand protected the statues; consequently they are in an amazing state of preservation – as though they were cast yesterday rather than 1,600 years ago," the IAA said.Lumps of coins discovered in the sea at the site of the ancient sea port of Caesarea, Israel, April 2016.

Also discovered were two lumps, together weighing 20 kilograms, composed of thousands of coins that had retained the shape of the long disintegrated pottery vessel in which they were being transported.
"The coins that were discovered bear the image of the emperor Constantine who ruled the Western Roman Empire (312–324 CE) and was later known as Constantine the Great, ruler of the Roman Empire (324–337 CE), and of Licinius, an emperor who ruled the eastern part of the Roman Empire and was a rival of Constantine, until his downfall in a battle that was waged between the two rulers," the IAA said.
Last year a treasure trove of Fatimid gold coins was found in the sea at Caesarea.
English Website Protesting Meir David Ettinger's Unjust Imprisonment. (grandson of Rabbi Meir Kahane HY"D)
This is more effective than circulating a petition, because it shows the government that many people are ready to make a personal sacrifice on his behalf.
P.S. Please pass this on to your friends.
This money will be used strictly for ads in newspapers, lawyers, posters and anything that will show the government that the people are not quietly allowing this unjustice where Meir received no reason for the administrative dentention and no trial and continues to sit in prison. Administrative detention can be renewed again and again as was applied to Rabbi Meir Kahane HY'D and now this government is using this "old British law" on his grandson Meir David Ettinger, father of a new-born baby boy. Help is badly needed.
